Focus on core business and time-to-market important for PINS
Netherlands – February 24, 2010 — The leading enabler of Cloud services, Parallels, today announced that PINS Nederland B.V., a leading hosting and managed services company in Benelux will implement Parallels Automation to provide a complete end-to-end automation platform including ordering, billing, and service delivery for cloud services.
Parallels Automation helps drive the expansion of new hosted services for PINS that increase productivity and profitability. "Parallels Automation provides PINS a scalable platform to deliver our extensive services to our customers”, explains Tjarko Kwee, Director at PINS. "In this rapidly changing market with the advent of Cloud Services it is wise to focus on our core business and not on developing technology or provisioning software. Our reseller channel requires a flexible billing and administration solution that is consistent across all our service offerings and Parallels meets that need. With the success of this launch, we are planning to add more SaaS applications in the coming months."
Independent Software Vendors (ISVs) can also successfully offer their SaaS applications by using Parallels Automation.
“This is an excellent product to shorten the time-to-market”, says Tjarko Kwee. “In this market it meets the highest demands that are made these days with regard to availability, connectivity, security and scalable infrastructure. Parallels Automation enables delivery of SaaS SaaS applications including Microsoft Exchancge, Windows SharePoint, Microsoft Office Communications Server (OCS), epages etc in a hosted environment and strengthens PINS’ market position to a one-stop shop for hosted applications.
"As businesses concentrate on time-to-market and extending services, Parallels Automation will play a key role in delivering increased profitability," said Jack Zubarev, President of Worldwide Service Providers at Parallels said. "Parallels Automation will help PINS provide multiple-vendor solutions and flexible billing and administration across its different service offerings."
PINS works together with leading players in the market of hardware, software and services and has its own network of partners with specific expertise.
